    Noted today that a valve box lid had English and Arabic molded into it on the outside. Guess irrigation products are going over big in the Arab world? They can definitely afford it. :p

    You sure it was arabic? Did it say "Oil Control Valve"? :laugh:

    I get a kick out of all the rainbird fliers that are in spanish on the backside.

    Did it have a rag on top and sand stuck everywhere?

    Based on all the Arabic I've seen on TV and the Internet over the past four years I'm pretty sure it was. But, WHAT it said is a mystery to me.

    My wife bought me a battery charger for my digital camera and mouse batteries. It was a Kodak charger, made in China and had instructions in English, French, German and Spanish.

    I'll try and remember tomorrow. Maybe someone can interpret it?

    Where does one go to be able to discern the smell of camel dung as opposed to say equine or bovine dung?? I don't think I could actually say for sure that what I might be smelling could in fact be camel dung?

    Just one of those questions that make you go "hhmmmmmmm"

    Jerry - who is not an official dung sniffer, altho' he has been known to fling it around in conversation from time to time.
